South Africa

The variety of all different kind of fire fighting vehicles in South Africa is nothing special. It is quite a common situation that there are trucks made in the US as well as from Europe within the same Fire Department. Compared with other countries this fact puts South Africa probably in a very unique position. However, nowadays the Fire Department prefers trucks made in the US. Due to the very high number of traffic accidents, all bigger units are equipped with the jaws of life. Therefore, the traditional pumper has also been replaced by the rescue pumper. Brush fires are being found on place 2 in the statistics, reason why the Fire Department has some special brush units ready like the Unimog.
